Becks makes next Chinese President's security team lose focus

David Beckham temporarily left the next President of China Xi Jinping without any security, as his bodyguards got in line to get the footie star's autograph.

The LA Galaxy ace's fame was so influential that the soon-to-be Chinese president Xi Jinping's safety team lost focus when he walked into the room at a high-powered meeting.

"David is phenomenal. We had a meeting with the soon-to-be president of China," Contactmusic quoted Tim Leiweke, the chief executive at LA Galaxy, as telling ESPN.

"He came into a suite with his security guys. These guys don't mess around, they pull guns if someone gets close to him.

"But David Beckham comes walking into the suite and the security guards leave the president, pull their autograph pads out and there is the president, in the middle of the chaos, all on his own because his security are all in line getting pictures with David," Leiweke said. (ANI)
